Complete Guide to Halloween Time at Disneyland!

Disneyland has announced Halloween Time at Disneyland and California Adventure! This year Halloween starts early at Disneyland from September 3, 2021, through October 31, 2021. If you keep reading, we will give you all the juicy details and what to expect at both parks for Halloween!

A Grim, Grinning Good Time

On select nights this September and October, Disney California Adventure Park will host a separately ticketed, Halloween spooktacular that includes after-hours park access to treat trails, photo opportunities, entertainment, attractions, décor and more. You can choose from 25 exciting nights. Reservations must be done online.

Goodies Galore for All Who Explore

Polish those pumpkins and head down to trick-or-treat trails for scads of sweets and a face-to-face with Mickey and friends, as well as some of storytelling’s most legendary misfits, the Disney Villains!

Each trail lures guests deeper into the immersive worlds of the scallywags everyone loves to hate—from Maleficent (Sleeping Beauty) to the Evil Queen (Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs), Oogie Boogie (Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas), and beyond. It’s a howl-o-ween adventure filled with frightfully delightful fun for all ages!

Trick-or-treat trails feature an assortment of candy brought to you by Mars Wrigley. Treat Trails are only available to guests attending Oogie Boogie Bash – A Disney Halloween Party, taking place on select nights from September 9 to October 31, 2021 at Disney California Adventure Park. A separate admission ticket is required for this special after-hours party event.

Sweet Halloween Treats & Great Parade Seats

Dig into some deviously delectable Halloween-themed desserts and beverages, then enjoy preferred seating to the Frightfully Fun Parade when you add the package to your Oogie Boogie Bash ticket. Each person in your party must purchase a package in order to enter the preferred seating area. The package includes:

  • An exclusive selection of haunting Halloween-themed desserts

  • Beverages

  • Reserved seating in front of Sonoma Terrace for Frightfully Fun Parade on Oogie Boogie Bash party nights

The tickets are $84 per person in addition to your admission. Children ages 2 and under may attend free of charge, provided they are seated on the lap of an adult.
